it for the attack like on 9/11? >> tamron, it's all of the above. the point everyone needs to keep in montt is the u.s. government has learned a lot in the past 11 years and is doing a better job. we went on the offensive and destroyed al qaeda as an organization. there's intent by the remit nannan remnants of al qaeda and all the other groups. they lack the capability. we have done extremely well against them militarily, politically in terms of the international community and also domestically. the end result makes us safer than 12 years ago. >> let's bring in colonel jack jacobs. we have video out of kabul, afghanistan with the troops there marking the solemn day, they're there, 88,000 swrr around that number. we're not talking a lot about afghanistan, what our role is. we know the president's pledge to have these troops out and we know the roll for our troops in iraq is now over but we have people on the ground there, many thousands. >> we will for a while. i think the withdrawal from afghanistan is going to accelerate after election day and surely after inauguration day. >> you said that for some
's often invited aggression. if the western powers had drawn clear red lines during the 1930s, i believe they would have stopped nazi aggression and world waii might have been avoided. in 1990, if saddam hussein had been clearly told that his conquest of kuwait would css a red line, the first gulwar might have been avoided. th iran.d lines have soke earlier this year iran threatened to close the strait of hormuz. the united states drew a clear red line, and iran backed off. now, redes cld be drawn in different parts of iran's nuclear weapons program. to be credible a red line must be dra first andforemost in one vital part of their ogram. on's efforts to enrich uranium. now, let me explain why. basically any bomb consists of exosive material and a the simplest example is gunpdeand a fuse. that is you light the fuse, and you set off the gunpowder. in the case of iran's plans t build a nuclearweapon, the gunpowder is enriched uranium. th fuses nardetonator. for iran amassing enough enriched uranium is far more difficult than producing the nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes man

for the internet film that insults islam. 12 people have been killed, and the new attack comes as the u.s. suspends most u.s.-afghan military activities because of the insider attacks. what's the response to the u.s. being forced to make this critical decision here? >> reporter: it's been really interesting, because nato has tried to backtrack a bit because the pentagon released information to suspend most u.s.-afghan operations within the country. when we spoke to nato officials in kabul, they wanted to emphasize it was a temporary suspension, but it's really to protect the lives of international forces within the country because of these insider attacks. that's when afghan forces turn on coalition partners. together with this anti-islamic film that caused outrage. they fear more soldiers will be under attack by the afghan partners. no matter what way you look at this, this is undermining to the nato motto and mission fighting alongside the afghan partners as they try on to hand over the country into afghan hands by the end of 2014. tamron. >> live for us in kabul. let's bring in t.j. crowley who

'm a kid of the '80s. hit me with your best shot. is that the best to be produced there? did it make democrats flinch at all? >> to take another line from the '80s, it ain't exactly the eye of the tiger. what governor romney said behind closed doors was a window into his soul and how he really feels about half the country not being worthy in his view. that attempt by the romney campaign to sort of balance the scales with this quote, you know, half the country is not really offended by what then-senator obama was discussing. senator obama at that time was not saying those people who disagree with me are worthless. this is a false equivalekwifl s. i think it flopped, because in every major campaign at the homestretch moment we're in right now, every now and then you get a moment of insight into who this person is, what their character is away from the talking points and scripted and everything. that's what the image and sound of governor romney at that fund-raiser revealed. it revealed the disdain for half the country. >> in fairness, michael, we know it this race is still tied and not
of the rnc say the ideal focus should be the 1070s of the world. those aren't exactly things that bring latinos into the republican tent. the republicans have a very tall order, to bring in 38% of latino vote, which is what romney says he needs to win the elections. it is not going to be easy, because of the 1070s of the world. and because of the some of the semantical discussions used by the republican party when they talk about immigration reform. the big problem that the democrats here have with the latino voter is not that the latinos support obama or don't, they do in overwhelming numberes. it is whether they will come out to vote on the 6 of november. >> how does the party ensure that? you have los angeles mayor, talking with tough words he wanted to say. so how do you inspire the latino voters, who as you point out, we can't say this enough, we are talking 64% to 30%. i said commanding. there needs to be a whole new word. since we like football analogies, if that was a game, that would be a certified whipping bit other team there. what do you do to get those people out? >> this i
